I wouldn’t say it’s a joke, it’s clear Neves sale will massively affect our budget and plans.

There’s also absolutely no disgrace in a player from South America deciding to go to Portugal which is a well trodden path either, as long as it’s simply down to his preference and not us not doing enough to...
